Jim Penton was Professor at the Department of Religious Studies. Perhaps not many know that he was of Metis heritage, and also involved in the Metis community in Lethbridge, Alberta.
âBack in the days when he wrote that book (I was a student at the University of Lethbridge, late Seventies to early Eighties), I contributed the illustration in the first edition for him (the Truth Lightning hitting the watchtower, seen above). That illustration is not in the third edition, but another one is, see below.
âIn the meantime, a third edition has been published
âby the University of Toronto Press
